Old-timey sex manual found
26th June, 2013
Hold on to your hats, Urbanites – it just got sexy up in here. A book from the 17th century has been digitised by Google Books, and is enlightening the world about the sexual lives of the people of yore. The School of Venus is basically an exploration of sexuality, “written in the form of a dialogue between a teenage girl and her more experienced cousin.”
Frances comes upon her cousin Katherine, “a Virgin of admirable beauty”, and explains that you can “enjoy a mans company without being Married.” Frances goes on to explain that there is a pleasure “that you have not yet tasted of, which as much exceeds all the rest, as Wine doth fair water.”
It seems like Frances is determined to give her cousin nightmares, because she uses the example of Katherine’s parents as a way of explaining “this mystery of Fucking.”
The book, also known as The ladies Delight Reduced into Rules of Practice, eventually becomes a sex manual, while Frances describes all of her favourite positions to Katherine: “sometimes my Husband gets upon me, and sometimes I get upon him, sometimes we do it sideways, sometimes kneeling, sometimes crossways, sometimes backwards… sometimes Wheelbarrow, with one leg upon his shoulders, sometimes we do it on our feet, sometimes upon a stool.”
Frances was a busy girl!
To finish the book in style, there are a series of etchings to illustrate the various positions. With a graphic appearance by the Wheelbarrow.
